    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:47 am
    Many iPhone and iPad users have found Apple’s latest iOS update, which was released this week, not as easy to install as it has been in the past. The biggest problem for most is the sheer size of iOS 8, which has led to people needing to delete apps, photos, music, videos and other files to free up the 5GB or so of space for the update. The iOS 8 update has also caused a few glitches for older devices such as the iPhone 4S or the iPad 2, which has been blamed on the older devices not having the performance power of the newer models. Several apps do not work with iOS 8 on the older…

    Image manipulation software like Photoshop can be used to correct perspective distortion in photographs. But, says Germany's photo equipment veteran Jobo, the results can only ever be something similar to real proportions, and approximating perspective by sight and experience is time-consuming and cumbersome at best. The LensTrue system combines an electronic inclinometer that sits underneath the user's camera with advanced software that automatically deskews the captured RAW image to the correct perspective...

Credit: Associated Press How many times has this happened to you, maybe even just this morning? You’re trying to navigate a busy sidewalk, and some lollygagging doofus texting on a cell phone slows you down or, worse, runs into you. Or maybe you, like me, sometimes are that lollygagging doofus.

    The Starbucks payment app remains one of the most successful examples of loyalty apps. Credit: Michael CoteCustomer loyalty programs, many of which are integrated on mobile and tablet devices, are now a major part of many businesses’ marketing plans.

  • E-commerce outgrows retail-only companies

    Service industry companies that don’t adopt e-commerce are getting left in the dust. Credit: Getty Images Your company is different. You are part of a service industry, a union of men and women who “do” instead of make and provide, instead of produce. This typically means that whatever you provide to the public is more difficult to price and is, in many cases, much more customizable to the service recipient. Retail establishments seem to have it easier, with their neatly packaged and priced products sitting on a tangible or virtual shelf waiting to be put into real or virtual carts.

Metro system: After a crash some five years ago, automatic operation was abandoned. Now however replacement of 'faulty' modules means that moving the whole system on to automatic operation can happen.

    When Apple and GT Advanced announced a partnership to make and purchase sapphire screens, most of the media jumped to the conclusion Apple was going to use them in their upcoming smartphones. However, when the iPhones were launched and no sapphire screens were used in the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, I began digging into the reason. What I have learned about this issue and why Apple chose not to include sapphire in this generation of iPhone is fascinating and reinforces why all of us need to be more careful before jumping to conclusions.

    Microsoft and Google appear to be moving in different directions when it comes to their platforms and first party hardware, as I’ve written about before.

    Much of the battleground of computing throughout tech history has been for our desks, our laps, and our pockets. In 2015, the battleground for our body will begin. It can be argued that battle had already begun but my firm belief is a true market for wearable computing has not yet emerged. Companies were playing in the space but the vast majority of consumers were not yet interested or, if they were, they were left disappointed. Apple’s smartwatch entrance will change this. Every company I spoke with who had already been in the market with a wearable of some type openly admitted to me…

    Two of the hottest topics in technology these days are smart wearable devices and digital identities. The former, thanks in part to last week’s unveiling of the Apple Watch, has captured the attention of nearly everyone recently, while the latter has gained more notoriety recently than anything else, but is poised to be a key issue for years to come. While at first glance the two are unrelated topics, I believe we will see them come together in some very intriguing ways over the next few years. One of the key characteristics that ties these two concepts together is they’re both very…

You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…
  • iPhone 6: Say Goodbye to Cracked Screens, Scratched Displays, or Color Distortion of Any Kind

    8 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

    3 Jul 2014 | 6:58 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

  • Wife of ISIS Captive, Alan Henning, Asks for His Release

    20 Sep 2014 | 4:10 pm
    The wife of a man whose life was threatened by the Islamic State has asked the terrorist group to "see it in their hearts to release" her husband, Alan Henning, according to a statement provided by the United Kingdom's Foreign and Commonwealth Office Saturday. The statement, as reported by The Daily Mirror, describes Henning, who was threatened last Saturday in another ISIS video showing the death of British aid worker, David Haines, as a "peaceful, selfless man."

  • This Week In Techdirt History

    20 Sep 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago A Canadian appeals court let common sense prevail and said that merely linking to a website was not defamatory. Over in the UK libel laws were still out of control, creating real chilling effects for criticism. Meanwhile, Oregon wanted to sue a guy who posted the state's own guide to using public laws because, apparently, the state prefers the public to be ignorant of the law (easier to lock 'em up that way). Meanwhile, a sheriff used Craigslist to arrest some prostitutes, and rather than realizing how the tool helped him do the job, he blamed Craigslist for the prostitutes…

    Normally, each Saturday we use the awesome stuff post to highlight interesting (and sometimes not so interesting) crowdfunding projects. But every so often we like to shake it up with something different. This week, I'm going to discuss some of the podcasts that I regularly listen to, and see what suggestions other folks have for good podcasts as well. For a long time, I didn't listen to any podcasts at all, and wasn't quite sure how people found the time. But that was before I had a commute and a dog. Those two things leave me a fair bit of time to listen to podcasts now. In case you're…
  • Canada Appears To Be Split On Whether To Extend Culture Tax To Internet Services

    Timothy Geigner
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:39 pm
    As you may or may not be aware, Canada, similar to many European countries, has what is commonly referred to as a "culture tax." The idea is that Canadian broadcasters must pay into a platform specifically used to fund Canadian content, lest Canada be overrun with the sweet, delicious programming offered by 'Merica. I mean, we've got, like, eight different shows that revolve around singing/dancing competitions, and some of them even include celebrities you've never heard of! You can't resist that kind of thing, right? Well, as you can imagine, the television broadcasters to our north have…

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:43 pm
    We recently wrote about the Brett Kimberlin saga -- which is long and involved, and which we'd avoided jumping into for a long time, given how complex and nutty it was. If you're not familiar with it, go back and read that post to catch up on it, but the super short version is that Kimberlin has been suing a lot of people, in large part because he doesn't like the way they're characterizing his past. And he's more or less indicated that he intends to tie people up in court for as long as possible, leading some to put out calls to have him declared a vexatious litigant. Most of the folks he's…
  • In Case You Were Wondering: James Cameron Is Still Winning Cases Over Avatar

    Timothy Geigner
    19 Sep 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The legacy of the movie Avatar was supposed to be about bringing the 3D movie era back. Or perhaps it was supposed to be strictly about box office numbers. It perhaps even should have been about James Cameron's place in the Hollywood pantheon. Too bad, then, that it's more likely the legacy of Avatar will be about just how many people attempted to sue claiming the movie copied everything from everyone ever. Given that this has been going on for roughly half a decade, perhaps you thought the course had been run. You'd be wrong, as it was only recently that yet another lawsuit was dismissed…

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:49 am
    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

    18 Jun 2014 | 12:10 am
    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

    19 May 2014 | 7:44 am
    I ran the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K Trail Run on Saturday and it was hot. The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90′s and low 100′s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80′s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…
  • XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run Race Preview

    5 May 2014 | 10:47 pm
    This past Sunday I went out for a run/hike at Malibu Creek State Park, next to Calabasas. No I didn’t see Justin Bieber but I did have a fancy Porsche tailgating me as I tried to find the park entrance. I had run into the XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run race in a magazine and thought I’d check out the site. Once I got to the Park I found out that parking was $12 and that they didn’t take credit. If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…
  • Ojai Half Marathon Race Report 2014

    28 Apr 2014 | 10:38 pm
    The Ojai Half Marathon was my second half marathon, the first being the Santa To The Sea race in December. The Santa To The Sea was on a very flat course with an elevation loss but the Ojai race features a bounty of rolling hills. As part of my training for this race, I ran the last 3 miles of the race on one weekend and ran the larger loop part of the course last week. I’m glad I did the training runs and tracked my heart rate because it helped me create a plan of attack for the race.

There is ample literature on the subject and there is no shortage of reasons why some people think that the lunar landing and mission was shot in a studio. One of the main arguments of conspiracy theorists was that the lighting seemed wrong in the scene where Armstrong comes out of the lunar module. It was suggested that there was a light next to the camera, which…

This makes it easier to charge the device versus more traditional chargers that need to be plugged in. Now if you had plans to get your hands on an Apple Watch when it is released next year, you might be interested to learn that the folks at Dodocase have created a dock for the Apple Watch that you can sort of pre-order…

    Hard on the heels of increased security measures in Apple's newly released iOS 8, Google this week confirmed that encryption will be turned on by default in the next release of Android. Android has offered encryption for more than three years, and keys are not stored off the device, so they can't be shared with law enforcement, Google said. In the next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default. Like Apple's new measures, the heightened security planned for Android L is in part a reaction to the widespread privacy concerns.

Along with nifty features like Hand Off and Family Sharing, iOS 8 contains a number of significant security and privacy enhancements. Among the most prominent is Apple's decision to keep its hands off the passcode created by the owner of an iOS device.
  • Opera Sings for Linux Users, With Just a Few Sour Notes

    Jack M. Germain
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Opera offers an interesting alternative to the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers, but its recent Linux release leaves some room for improvement. Opera previously enjoyed a reputation as the go-to browser of choice for mobile environments. However, Opera Software, the developer, ignored Linux users for quite a long while until now. Opera's Version 12.16 is a very usable release -- but it is not without drawbacks. Perhaps its biggest accomplishment is creating a library of Firefox-like extensions.

  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

    Bill Brenner

    Included in all the tweets and Facebook postings about the 13th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday was this from friend and co-worker Martin McKeay: Never forget 9/11 and terrorism. But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…

    Thanks to the efforts of, we’ve known for years that LIGATT Security and Gregory Evans can’t be trusted. That article includes a long list of examples where Evans has committed plagiarism and threatened those who question his credentials as a hacker. There are court documents on the Internet that add to the evidence. I won’t go into the full summary of misdeeds here, because veteran security professionals have heard and seen it all before. Besides, I can’t do it any better than already has. Despite all we know about Evans, the mainstream…

    If you look closely, the 1996 Tim Burton film “Mars Attacks!” offers us a few security lessons. Let the following clip play as I run through some examples… Lesson 1: If you release a white dove over someone’s head before you verify who you’re dealing with, you have failed to practice due diligence. The resulting bad press could damage your brand. Lesson 2: Regarding Jack Nicholson’s speech about two out of three branches of the government still working: Layers of security may be smart, but if it’s badly configured and government-issued, it…

    Bill Brenner
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:48 pm
    Growing up in Revere, Mass., taught me some very simple lessons about information security. Note: When people hear the name Revere, they think of these things: Paul Revere’s ride, guns, the IROC-Z automobile, lots of gold chains and language that doesn’t include the letter r at the end of a word. Information security? You probably think I’ve lost what little sanity I had. But I’m serious.

    Unlike some of those fervent Agile proponents who think the Agile process is "the end all and be all" solution of our IT ills, our approach to IT process improvement is based not on some vague process improvement for the sake of process, but on an organization's business needs and goals—the only condition for any process improvement effort to have a measurable and lasting success.Step 1: Identify the Business Sponsor and Her or His Needs and GoalsAs long as we recognize that the main objective in building software is to support a business, it will become obvious that for a software delivery…

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    Let’s face it, we’ve all been disappointed many many times on occasion. Not to rub it in, but if you were hoping for a Yes vote in Scotland you’re probably feeling some pretty intense disappointment right now. What you might not know is where you’re feeling it, as scientists only just discovered that themselves. In fact, researchers from the University of California, San Diego have not only identified the part of the brain that controls our feelings of disappointment but a connected area that regulates it.

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:47 am
    Many iPhone and iPad users have found Apple’s latest iOS update, which was released this week, not as easy to install as it has been in the past. The biggest problem for most is the sheer size of iOS 8, which has led to people needing to delete apps, photos, music, videos and other files to free up the 5GB or so of space for the update. The iOS 8 update has also caused a few glitches for older devices such as the iPhone 4S or the iPad 2, which has been blamed on the older devices not having the performance power of the newer models. Several apps do not work with iOS 8 on the older…

    Apple has expanded its use of two-factor verification checks to protect data stored online by its customers, after a massive breach last month that saw thousands of nude celebrity photos stolen from iCloud. The BBC says the move follows suggestions that third-party software had been used to steal the photos. It says that the security facility remains an opt-in choice, although some experts believe that Apple should make it the default option. According to, Apple quietly reactivated two-factor authentication for iCloud on Tuesday, after the feature was initially tested but then…

That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

  • LG Electronics expects to sell 800,000 OLED TVs in 2015

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:04 am
    According to Digitimes, some "industry sources" say that LG Electronics dropped its OLED TV sales target for 2015 from 5 million TVs to only 800,000. LG still expects OLED to become the mainstream TV display technology in the future.While it ain't good to hear that LG is less optimistic, it should also be noted that the 5 million sales target (which indeed we heard from one LG executive) was never realistic. LGD's upcoming Gen-8 M2 OLED production line (which is still not online) will have a monthly capacity of 26,000 substrates - or about 150,000 55" panels. Assuming 100% yields (which is…

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

      We have seen cross-platform playing conjunctive role in the domain of mobile app development. It has gained a great value in the times when people crave for online presence and mobility drives the ways of communication. All that popularity and assured space comes from the way it falls in to commit to a larger role and penetrate better with the mobile dynamics.

    20 Sep 2014 | 2:45 am
    NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards the other day, based on the Maxwell graphics processing unit architecture. It, thus, stands to reason that gaming PC vendors would be all over them. We've already seen some computers adopting the cards, or one of them (the GTX 980 in particular). The Syber Vapor Xtreme comes to mind. However, the list of gaming systems that now features a Maxwell graphics card from NVIDIA is far longer than one or two entries. There are systems ...

    The new GeForce GTX 980 graphics card from NVIDIA is not powered by the best possible Maxwell graphics processing unit, since the company is holding the GM200/GM210 in reserve. However, it still outperforms every other NVIDIA single-GPU card, including the GTX 780 Ti that has certain advantages. Some reviews say so at least. It appears that professional overclockers decided to see for themselves just what the new GM204-400 GPU could do. Fast forward to the present time and voila! K|NGP|N an... (read more)

    Social media is an easy concept to grasp as an individual that wants to engage online. Create an account, follow or friend a few people, add a group, circle a page, and subscribe to a channel. All of a sudden you can find yourself spending hours online. But as a professional for a ministry or church, the ability to engage online can quickly become chaotic. Mike Allton of highlights one of the best tools out there for churches to use, Hootsuite, in his new eBook The Unofficial Book On HootSuite: The #1 Tool for Social Media Management.

    I don’t normally sit through and watch tutorials like this very often, but this particular ‘behind-the-scenes’ look was particularly fascinating to me.

Morris shows all sorts of cool tips and tricks, pulling back the veil of composite photography and the power of Photoshop. Take a look at these before and after shots to see exactly what he did: Amazing, isn’t it? Here’s…

    Phil Schneider
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Billy Hanshaw is a designer out of the UK, and he has the remarkable honor of being the fan who redesigned Doctor Who‘s Series 8 titles! “How?” might you ask. By being commissioned? No. By responding to an advertisement or a contest? No. He earned this honor simply by creating them. You see, Billy initially took on the project as merely something for his portfolio, something to demonstrate what he could do. After he uploaded it to YouTube, he had no intention of taking it any further. From there, however, other fans of the show went crazy and began the eventually-successful…

    So you ever been in that situation where you either see a message like, “Number of active connections has changed. There are now 2 active connections to this console” Or… “Unable to connect to the MKS: Console access to the virtual machine cannot be granted since the connection limit of ‘x’ has been reached.”  (This second one is most likely to come up when you have either a STIG or security defined limitation to the number of remote connections to use, thus by default you’re more likely to see message #1!)

    20 Sep 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Facebook is experimenting with a new feature for noncommittal folks. A small number of users (like this guy) are already seeing a Snapchat-style option to have their status, photo, or link self-destruct in the Facebook for iOS app. You'll be able to set your posts to expire anywhere between one hour and seven days, making it a nifty tool for more-timely updates, like Craigslist postings or open-house party invites. Since Facebook couldn't acquire social media's trendiest ghost, it probably thinks it best to just copy it. Of course, this isn't the first time Facebook has tried to create its…

And now the "ad" is spreading across the Internet, with customers eager to ditch tangles of cords once and for all. Repeat after me: microwaves are for food, not iPhones. Wireless charging in the vein of how the Moto 360 powers up is one thing. But if a trip to your kitchen's microwave to power your next day's worth of iMessages, Instagrams, and Snapchats…

  • Why Care About Online Privacy (If You’ve Got Nothing To Hide)

    Jason Welsh
    6 Sep 2014 | 5:55 pm
    It seems as though the more we prosper the more privacy we sacrifice. Nowadays, your social networks know everything about you and the world doesn’t seem to care much about this intrusion. If your privacy is something you’re lenient with or if you belong to the group who think that the breach of privacy is something serious, or among the people who think protecting their privacy is a big deal, this article will help you understand just why you need to guard your confidentiality and also help you dispel a few myths about the thing that have probably been nagging your mind.

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…
  • 13 Ways to Boost Broadband Speed

    29 Aug 2014 | 7:28 pm

There are things you can do to fix the problems on your end. Check to see if any of these problems are causing a drop in speed and correct them to enjoy a boost in broadband speed. 1.

  • Protect Your Gadgets from Your Kids

    Jason Welsh
    25 Aug 2014 | 7:10 pm
      Do you have children in your house and you want to keep them away from your gadgets? Or your nephews are visiting you quite often? It is already known that smartphones, tablets, computers, and any other devices of that kind are simply irresistible for kids, no matter their age. They are not a simple toy; kids can learn a lot by using a computer, so you shouldn’t forbid them access to this kind of devices, just try to keep them safe. Nowadays, kids are growing up surrounded by such gadgets and they become more tech-savvy day by day. They want to touch everything, to test any gadget,…
  • 5 Examples of Insect-Inspired Robotics

    Adam Thompson
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:50 am
    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

  • Predicting iPhone development via Moore's Law

    9 Sep 2014 | 12:57 pm
    iPhone 6 launched today, apparently the "Biggest Advancement" in iPhone history. In 2010 we made some predictions about iPhone 6 specs based on a Moore's Law progression (see chart above, written in 2010 - as a commentator notes, 2010 "Hot PC's" had gone up a few notches too by 2014), we thought it would be interesting to go back to that - we were estimating it would: - Launch in 2014 (got that right) - 4Ghz processor (actual apparently 25% faster than the 1 GHz processor in the iPhone 5) - 2 Gb RAM (not yet known but unlikely to be 4Ghz) - 256 GB Memory (currently only 128, same as iPhone 5)…

    Today Apple unveiled the next iPhone (v 6), which pretty much follows our Moore's Law iPredictions, and a watch - Grauniad. The Apple Watch will monitor health and fitness, tracking the wear’s movement, heart rate and activity with built-in sensors, feeding the information into Apple’s Health app for the iPhone and iPad, allowing review and analysis of the data. ... Apple’s new contactless mobile wallet, Apple Pay, will also be available on the Apple Watch to enable users to pay for goods and services in the US using the smartwatch like a contactless credit card.

  • Big Internet, Small Returns, Warm Data and Cold Water

    5 Sep 2014 | 5:47 am
    There is a new trend emerging, perhaps - these 2 posts from Nick Carr & Awedience blog's Chris Arnold are thought provoking. Nick Carr: We talk about Big Oil and Big Pharma and Big Ag. Maybe it’s time we started talking about Big Internet. That thought crossed my mind after reading a couple of recent posts. One was Scott Rosenberg’s piece about a renaissance in the ancient art of blogging. I hadn’t even realized that blogs were a thing again, but Rosenberg delivers the evidence. Jason Kottke, too, says that blogging is once again the geist in our zeit. Welcome back, world. The other…
  • Ashya King & Parent Power via Social Media

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:22 am
    For those who are not aware of the unfolding story, this is a summary from Channel 4 News: The parents of Ashya King spend another night in a Spanish prison, 300 miles from where their son is being treated for a brain tumour, as a petition to reunite them reaches over 110,000 signatures. A judge in Spain ruled that Brett and Naghmeh King must be held [in custody] for up to 72 hours while the court considers whether to grant a British extradition request. The couple, who were arrested in Spain after the five-year-old was taken from a UK hospital without doctors' consent, told the judge in…
  • Nude Pictures hacked in Cloud shocker

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:15 am
    Whoever could have predicted that naked pictures of famous people stuck up in the Cloud would ever be hacked and published. Surely not, I hear you say? Well, in ths case it was an open secret the system was compromised- Business Insider: The ability to gain access to Apple's iCloud accounts has been an open secret among users of porn message boards for years, with enterprising users charging others to "rip" accounts and share nude photos. But even if it was not an open secret, from an information security point of view data in Cloud systems is a nightmare compared to data on your own systems.

  • This Week In Techdirt History

    Mike Masnick
    20 Sep 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago A Canadian appeals court let common sense prevail and said that merely linking to a website was not defamatory. Over in the UK libel laws were still out of control, creating real chilling effects for criticism. Meanwhile, Oregon wanted to sue a guy who posted the state's own guide to using public laws because, apparently, the state prefers the public to be ignorant of the law (easier to lock 'em up that way). Meanwhile, a sheriff used Craigslist to arrest some prostitutes, and rather than realizing how the tool helped him do the job, he blamed Craigslist for the prostitutes…
  • Awesome Stuff: Podcasts To Listen To

    Mike Masnick
    20 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Normally, each Saturday we use the awesome stuff post to highlight interesting (and sometimes not so interesting) crowdfunding projects. But every so often we like to shake it up with something different. This week, I'm going to discuss some of the podcasts that I regularly listen to, and see what suggestions other folks have for good podcasts as well. For a long time, I didn't listen to any podcasts at all, and wasn't quite sure how people found the time. But that was before I had a commute and a dog. Those two things leave me a fair bit of time to listen to podcasts now. In case you're…
  • Canada Appears To Be Split On Whether To Extend Culture Tax To Internet Services

    Timothy Geigner
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:39 pm
    As you may or may not be aware, Canada, similar to many European countries, has what is commonly referred to as a "culture tax." The idea is that Canadian broadcasters must pay into a platform specifically used to fund Canadian content, lest Canada be overrun with the sweet, delicious programming offered by 'Merica. I mean, we've got, like, eight different shows that revolve around singing/dancing competitions, and some of them even include celebrities you've never heard of! You can't resist that kind of thing, right? Well, as you can imagine, the television broadcasters to our north have…
  • American Spectator Magazine Deletes All Mentions Of Brett Kimberlin Following Apparent Settlement

    Mike Masnick
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:43 pm
    We recently wrote about the Brett Kimberlin saga -- which is long and involved, and which we'd avoided jumping into for a long time, given how complex and nutty it was. If you're not familiar with it, go back and read that post to catch up on it, but the super short version is that Kimberlin has been suing a lot of people, in large part because he doesn't like the way they're characterizing his past. And he's more or less indicated that he intends to tie people up in court for as long as possible, leading some to put out calls to have him declared a vexatious litigant. Most of the folks he's…
  • In Case You Were Wondering: James Cameron Is Still Winning Cases Over Avatar

    Timothy Geigner
    19 Sep 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The legacy of the movie Avatar was supposed to be about bringing the 3D movie era back. Or perhaps it was supposed to be strictly about box office numbers. It perhaps even should have been about James Cameron's place in the Hollywood pantheon. Too bad, then, that it's more likely the legacy of Avatar will be about just how many people attempted to sue claiming the movie copied everything from everyone ever. Given that this has been going on for roughly half a decade, perhaps you thought the course had been run. You'd be wrong, as it was only recently that yet another lawsuit was dismissed…

  • Etymology is Everything

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:09 pm
    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…
  • Cities, transportation, and representations of space

    5 Mar 2014 | 1:33 pm
    I’ve posted my thoughts on urban life and the micropolitics of getting around on my parenting blog, but for various reasons, I didn’t explain how philosophies of space and technology (in particular, Lefevbre and Peter-Paul Verbeek) inform my ideas on the subject. since this blog is more dissertation-oriented, I thought I’d drop a brief overview of these philosophies here. If you’ve read my rant on my other blog, and if you’ve encountered either of these thinkers at all (most parents and transit users I talk to haven’t), you might appreciate where I’m…
  • Voltage v Does: Copyright Trolls of the World Unite…

    21 Feb 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs. Time will tell if Canada proves at all to be a jurisdiction…
  • Dissertating

    2 Feb 2014 | 6:48 pm
    Survived an important mental test. Since I’ve been teaching pretty much 3/4 time to full time* over the past 1.5 years, the dissertation gets sporadically updated and reconsidered. Well, there is a time limit on these things, and I’m currently at a half time teaching load. Despite how unpleasant I find this precarity (and there’s reason to suspect it might carry on beyond my graduation later this year), and without getting into the anguish of detail on this count, I’m looking on the bright side, which is that right now my time is freed up a bit for writing. This is the…
  • Web Hosting at Home on a Raspberry Pi

    26 Jan 2014 | 10:33 am
    It has been a learning experience moving my 8 domains (including this one) from a ~$10/month hosting service* to a home server built on the Raspberry Pi. Not counting the small amount of time in labour (possibly 8 hours of learning/testing/configuring things, as I am a novice Apache tinkerer**), I will see savings before 2014 is up. The annual cost of virtual hosting with a hosting company, with a decent Linux server, software installation, full on access to mod-rewrite, unlimited MySQL, etc is ~$135. The Raspberry Pi ($47 CDN) can’t do it out-of-the-box (you need to buy a power supply…

  • Harman Kardon Partners With Snoop Dogg, Slash and Others to Lament the Downfall of Music in New Documentary

    Harman Kardon has joined forces with artists, including Slash, Snoop Dogg, and Lianne La Havas, to lament a trend that you usually only hear about when it’s time for someone to market new speakers or headphones. You hear a lot about listening to music ‘as the artist intended,’ which is a phrase presented out of context, isolated and accepted on the surface, much like a single taken out of the context of its album. This new documentary, Distortion of Sound, never gets around to explaining what that phrase means in great detail, but it’ll at least give you a sense of…

To give an example, if you are typing on the touchscreen keypad, you will get the feel very similar to when you press a key.

If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog.

    With all the hype and interest in wearables these past few months, you'd think more companies would be looking to compete with Google's Glass headset, but up until now that hasn't really been the case. Sony teased an alternative to Google's gear in the form of a SmartEyeglass prototype first shown off at CES 2014, which aims to be as versatile as Glass while bettering it in some respects as well. The rather awkward-looking SmartEyeglass is peppered with sensors - there's an accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, ambient light sensor, and a 3-megapixel camera - and comes with a wire…

    Vine has been around for a couple of years, but it seems to be gaining some traction, or perhaps that’s just because I’m seeing people use it differently than before. (Translation: Cats). As it’s owned by Twitter, Vine is not going anywhere, even if it’s not going anywhere, if you know what I mean. However, recently the app was beefed up a bit with some new edit features added that make it more compelling (and fun) to use. As I’ve indicated before, I’m a fan of animated GIFs and Vine is, well, sort of an animated GIF (they call them “looping…

The demand is partly due to mobile application development, along with the growing OData ecosystem where we’re seeing adoption from the likes of Progress Software, Microsoft, IBM, SAP, Tableau Software, Apple, and Salesforce.

Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

    Mark Tullio
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

    Apple is known for their ridiculously expensive products and the same goes for the newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Potential customers are going to have to spend an extra amount of money because even with a contract deal, the iPhone 6 does not cost peanuts. This is exhibited by users when they purchase their very first iPhone; purchasing aftermarket cases and screen protectors just to prevent the small amount of blemish that ends up tarnishing the pristine craftsmanship of the device. However, for the first owner of the iPhone 6 in Perth, Australia, it turned out to be a disaster…

    As part of achieving Microsoft’s utopic vision, the newly appointed CEO Satya Nadella previously decided to layoff the workforce that was termed as redundant to the overall productivity of the organization. Now, the company has decided to layoff an additional 2,100 employees, out of which sources say that 747 were present in the region of Seattle. According to the software company’s plan, Microsoft had announced in July that it was going to lay off 18,000 personnel in the course of 12 months, marking a 14 percent reduction in the total workforce.

The reference version of the GTX 980 and GTX 970 come with a price tag of $549 and $329 respectively, with non-reference designs to follow suit (with a higher price tag of course), but these new series are able to offer more than just impressive gaming performance in demanding titles.

    The release of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus made another mark to the financial innovative side of things because both of Apple’s newly released devices possess NFC (near field communications) connectivity. The technology allows two mobile devices (both mobile devices must possess the NFC chip in order to be paired together) to be paired together and transfer data across each phone. Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus possess another feature in the NFC chip; to make online transactions using a service called Apple Pay. Apple can add another rival to its never ending list of…

    Recently, I have come across a nifty calendar app called Sunrise Calendar. My first impression was that it works very well with Google Calendars. One of the main features that I look for in an app when it connects to Google Calendars is whether or not you can join a hangout from an event within the app. With Sunrise Calendar, this is accomplished very easily by clicking on the “Join video call” under the Hangout heading at the bottom of the event view. This works perfectly by opening up the hangout video call just as it would if you were viewing the event through the Google…

    In case you wanted to create a new Google account, now you won’t be buggered to have a Google+ profile. Google quietly dropped the requirement earlier this month. New users will be given the option to opt out of creating an account. Perhaps it’s a move to distance themselves from the service or they finally listened to complaints about the rule. Or Google is taking its social network in another direction as well. It’s just clear that they are no longer pushing users to be part of the Google+ network, which we think is a good thing.

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…

    The Apple Watch isn’t just another iDevice, a “wearables” accessory to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch. In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue. I reasoned that a watch battery would be too small to feed a computer powerful enough to offer a…

    There are many myths about open source software (OSS) and perhaps the most common is this: open source and profit are mutually exclusive. Surely there are those who believe that all software should be open and free, but they are a minority (not dissimilar to art purists). The truth is: many OSS developers and projects do generate revenue. Some earn just enough money to survive while others produce so much money that they put proprietary alternatives to shame. How’s that for irony? That being said, profiting as an OSS developer does require a slight paradigm shift. Rather than seeing…

    15 Sep 2014 | 10:01 pm
    When it comes to working and getting things done, traditional belief leads most people to think that silence is key. Noises are what distract individuals from their work and prevent them from accomplishing the things they need to accomplish. However, more and more tests reveal truths quite opposite to this conventional way of thinking. Although too much noise can certainly be distracting, silence is not the answer either. So where does the answer lie? The answer is quite simple: background noise. In fact, the answer is so simple it benefits us in ways we don’t even realize. As the nature of…

    Nowadays, healthcare cost is surging considerably in the United States. It is quite evident from the fact that most patients need to contribute a good amount of money towards their Medicare payments. While considering employees with health insurance coverage, many employers or insurers require that they cover a greater share of the total medical costs through increased co-payments and deductibles. These out-of pocket costs can be large especially for those patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma that need regular and timely medical checkups. A new study reveals that low income…

    Despite the report from the HHS Inspector General pointing out the Medicare overcharges of $6.7 billion, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which runs Medicare is not ready to investigate overpayments to doctors. CMS says it doesn’t plan to review the billings of doctors who almost always charge for the most expensive visits because it isn’t cost-effective to do so. A review by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that Medicare inappropriately paid almost $6.7 billion for Evaluation & Management services in 2010. Released in May 2014, the review…

    Network Ping, DiffServ, QoS or something special? There are lots of ways to calculate network bandwidth. A network ping can determine WAN speed but this is not ideal as many organizations disable ICMP for many security reasons. Windows firewall alone blocks a lot of ping traffic by default due to the inherent security issues that can be associated by it. DiffServ can give good Quality of Service (QoS) but requires hardware investment that can utilize this technology not to mention some solutions leveraging this technology only calculates QoS on edge routers.

  • It is Time to Get Serious about Architecting ICT

    16 Sep 2014 | 1:27 pm
    Just finished another ICT-related technical assistance visit with a developing country government. Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been around for quite a long time, with some references going back to the 1980s. ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF, and other ICT standards or recommendations have been around for quite a long time as well, with training and certifications part of nearly every professional development program.

  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

    There was a time at the height of my home video and audio craze that the number of devices I needed to watch a movie could no longer be counted on one hand. Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…

    John Myers
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

  • Easy-to-read file folder labels for trial exhibits using Mail Merge

    Deborah Savadra
    11 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    The last thing you need to be doing during a trial is frantically searching for the right exhibit. Laying your hands on the correct document becomes a whole lot easier when they're in file folders marked with clear, easy-to-read labels. Here's how to use Microsoft Word's Mail Merge feature to transform your exhibit list into a set of labels with the exhibit number in large spot-it-from-across-the-room print.

  • How to recycle your [legal] briefs safely

    Deborah Savadra
    10 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't. What sort of evil stuff lurks in that text you just pasted over from your last magnum opus? And how's it going to undermine your next court filing? Click the link below to…

These came from competitors or even competing groups and you watched them come and go. Some were ingenious and you admired them for their design. Some were real stinkers. You felt confident that your new idea was a hit and would create the buzz needed to launch. You were really excited about this one. After the…

    The average person has over 100 apps on their smartphone these days, but people far from use all of them. In fact, most people use only 20-30 apps on a regular basis. When I was at Nielsen I dug into this kind of data on a regular basis, and have since seen a lot of data form other sources that pretty much show the same thing. One thing that is apparent is the difference between ages when it comes to app consumption and time spent using the device, with millennials leading in the later category. What I’ve also seen is a further segmentation of people and how they use their smartphone and…

The key is reducing UI complexity while enhancing UX. With Jony Ivy now leading both hardware and software design efforts for iPhone, iPad, and iPod, Apple is closer to making this happen. iOS’ overall look and feel hasn’t radically changed much since 2007, though it was both disruptive and immensely appealing when it debuted.

    As products get smaller and denser, factors that used to be fairly easy to deal with can become areas of concern. Conformal coatings are getting increased interest now as usage grows and the quality of coatings comes under more scrutiny. These coatings have typically been applied and examined using a range of related standards. For example, IPC-CC-830 addresses some basic testing of materials properties, while IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 define how a cured film should look.

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm

In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible.

  • The New Pinterest Analytics Is More Robust than Twitter’s

    Pinterest is sometimes viewed as the latecomer on the social media scene. By all rights the platform’s visual focus should have made it an overnight success story, but it often takes a back seat to Facebook, Twitter, and even smaller platforms like Tumblr. But Pinterest has proven itself a top performer for businesses that take the time to learn to use it well. Now Pinterest is making its network even more valuable to businesses, with the unveiling last week of an expanded and upgraded analytics feature.

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:12 pm
    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul

    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch of Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

Both feel enormous compared to the tiny 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5S. Don't believe it? Here's the iPhone 5S on top of the iPhone 6 Plus. The entire body of the 5S fits inside just the screen of the Plus: If you've been an iPhone user for the last several years, the new, bigger screens might be a bit jarring, even on the slightly-smaller iPhone 6. But on the software side, Apple has some clever…
  • Fantasy Football Meets Sales: This Startup Shows How Salespeople Can Have More Fun At Work

    Eugene Kim
    20 Sep 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Fantasy football can cost companies up to billions of dollars worth of productivity each season, but Chattanooga-based startup Ambition believes it can actually boost sales — if used in the right way. Ambition, which just came out of Y Combinator this year, offers sales productivity software that takes a fantasy football-style approach to track and motivate sales teams. It groups each sales member into separate teams, where they compete over a variety of categories, like the number of sales leads generated, phone calls made, or profit reached. Each metric, updated in real time…
  • MUNSTER: iPhone 6 Plus Demand Greater Than Expected, And Customers Are Paying More For Storage (AAPL)

    Dave Smith
    20 Sep 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Potential good news for Apple: A new report from Piper Jaffray's senior analyst Gene Munster on Saturday suggests more people lined up for the iPhone 6 Plus on launch day than expected, and customers opted to spend more for the higher storage options, too. As Business Insider’s Jay Yarow previously pointed out, there’s a giant gap between the 16GB and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 6 — one model will leave you with more than enough space, while the other gives you hardly any space at all to play with, thus incentivizing customers to purchase the more expensive model. John Gruber of Daring…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work. But it was good for me to dust of the ol’ programming fingers and learn Python to grab some publicly available information and make it more accessible to the less IT centric…
  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

    You all know how much I love nearlyfreespeech, it’s one of the best hosting providers out there. Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

    Uber, a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services–is now banned in Malaysia. The Uber service was viewed as a god-send by citizens of KL simply because the existing taxi service in the city–is Shit! So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

So when the Audioengine A2+ also came for review I was more than a little excited to run them through their paces. The Audioengine A2+ is not a completely new product perse and its largely based on their earlier Audioengine A2 which was already a fantastic product. So how do you improve on an already outstanding product without taking the pricing to a new level?. One way was to add more features to the product. So Audioengine added a DAC…

Who planted it, or if its genuinely leaked is the oldest discussion you’ll see concerning leaks about information about any tech product. But a new GPU cooler design for the AMD Radeon’s upcoming GPU- Radeon R9 390X- came at the time when Asetek released a press release, stating that it secured a design win with an undisclosed OEM customer- for a GPU liquid product.

  • Understanding How Open Source Software Developers Make Money

    Joel Lee
    20 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    There are many myths about open source software (OSS) and perhaps the most common is this: open source and profit are mutually exclusive. Surely there are those who believe that all software should be open and free, but they are a minority (not dissimilar to art purists). The truth is: many OSS developers and projects do generate revenue. Some earn just enough money to survive while others produce so much money that they put proprietary alternatives to shame. How’s that for irony? That being said, profiting as an OSS developer does require a slight paradigm shift. Rather than seeing…

    As a child, you memorized your friend’s phone numbers; now you just add them to your phone. You used to memorize directions; now you just use your GPS. Are humans becoming stupid? It depends what you mean. You could argue we’re becoming less good at memorizing things, including phone numbers and directions. But does that mean we’re less intelligent? Not necessarily. Intelligence is more than rote memorization, of course. But is not using our brains to memorize things making us less intelligent, due to lack of practice? And are the many distractions the digital world offers…

  • How to Move or Change the Location of My Documents Folder

    Aseem Kishore
    5 Sep 2014 | 5:49 pm
    By default, the My Documents folder is located in Windows XP and Windows Vista is located on the same drive or partition as the operating system. This is fine for anyone who has only a single drive or a single partition on their computers, such as the C drive, but if you have more than one physical or logical drive on your computer, it’s best to move your My Documents folder off the system drive. In Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the situation is a bit different. In Windows 7, you have libraries, which are kind of virtual folders that basically link to other folders that can be located…

    Scientists have long marveled at the squid's ability to sense the color of its surroundings, and then instantaneously change its own skin coloring in order to blend in. To that end, a number of projects have attempted to create man-made materials that are similarly able to change color on demand. One of the latest studies, being led by associate professor Stephan Link at Rice University, may ultimately result in improved LCD displays. ..

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

  • Can you train your brain to crave healthy foods?

    Amy Reichelt, Research Fellow at UNSW Australia
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:02 pm
    The mere sight of a slice of gooey chocolate cake, a cheesy pizza, or a sizzling burger can drive us to eat these foods. In terms of evolution we show preference for high calorie foods as they are an important source of energy. We tend to crave these rich, tasty foods not only when we are hungry, but when we are emotional, bored, or stressed out.

    The term 'creationist' can encompass many types, each with their own beliefs. Logan Campbell/Flickr, CC BY-SAJohn Long provoked a comments barrage on The Conversation last week after defending the theory of evolution in the face of creationist views. Unfortunately, while some of the comments were thoughtful, others were dogmatic statements of position, mostly against vaguely and misunderstood “creationism”. Perhaps it’s worth clarifying “creationisms” rather than committing the Dawkinsian fallacy of tarring all religionists with the same brush. After all, the list of serious…

  • How to get an extra 15 GB of OneDrive storage for free

    Mihaita Bamburic
    20 Sep 2014 | 2:24 pm
    There is plenty of competition in the cloud storage space, but, unfortunately, for the most part any massive changes are limited to paid plans. They get bigger, they get cheaper, but the free tier, which most users get first, remains largely as limiting as it has always been. Sure, we get a couple of extra gigs for free here and there, but it's all smoke after all, meant to lead us right to the money grabbers. (And who could blame providers for trying to make money?) Now, Microsoft is doing something rather interesting, as it gives OneDrive users nearly twice as much storage in the free plan,…

    Launch day is over, and now the weekend warriors descend on Apple and cellular carrier stores looking to buy iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Expect mayhem everywhere. Not since 2010 has there been such long lines for or insanity about a new "i" device. I expected nutsville, even with preorder option, but nothing like this. To be honest, the frenzy defies logic and there must be some kind of mob mentality driving it. I am reminded of Windows 95's nearly 20 years ago. Some people will point to past iPhone launches as being as big or bigger. No. iPhone 4 was the last gigantic debut weekend, before Apple…

  • Grabilla 1.23 adds scrolling window captures

    Mike Williams
    20 Sep 2014 | 9:06 am
    All-in-one free screengrab tool Grabilla has been updated to version 1.23 with the ability to capture scrolling windows. This is ideal if you need to capture a long web page or other document. There’s no need to take and edit multiple grabs, as the program should handle everything for you. These captures are a little more complex to set up than with some of the competition; you can’t just click on a window and leave Grabilla to scroll this itself. Here you must draw a freehand rectangle within the window and scroll it manually. Grabilla apparently takes multiple grabs as you scroll and…

  • How to Navigate the Perils of Self-Publishing

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:45 pm
    As recently as ten years ago, self -publishing was not all that easy. You had to find a decent place to print your book, fork over some dough, and wait for the books to arrive. You couldn’t order piecemeal or wait for some orders to roll in first, you had to buy a bunch and hope for the best. Still, writers would pay thousands of dollars for this option if they were not able to find a publishing company. Like authors, independent musicians and filmmakers were in this same tough spot too.  Today, we have more options.  You can self-publish by creating digital files of your material…

    3 Sep 2014 | 2:35 pm
    One support request we see often in regards to our discount feature is how to set a percent based discount for just one product. We see it so often because the option to select either a Flat or Percent discount is grayed out when a product is selected.The simplest way to handle this is to just calculate the percentage from the item and enter in the flat amount in.  For example if your product is $10.99 and you want a 25% discount, you would enter in a flat amount of $2.75 as the flat amount since 25% of $10.99 is $2.7475 you would round up, or you could round down if you want.There…

    There are many ingredients that go into building a company: hard work, emotional fortitude, agility, willingness to take risks, fanatical commitment to driving customer value, ability to execute in the face of ambiguity, and more. But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

    A little more than 26 hours after it had started, the votes were tallied and the winners announced. The prizes for the winners ranged from Bose headphones to dinner at a local restaurant to stock options. Steve took home our top prize for his work on internal customer reporting, which received lots of cheers, the loudest of which came from our solution architects. But before I get ahead of myself, let me go back to the beginning. I’m a big believer in company sponsored hackathons. They provide a much needed break from the daily grind of building a product, and can be a cathartic release for…
  • Talent Density

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:40 pm
    As a founder and hiring manager of a fast growing startup, I’m always in hiring mode. When I recently heard news a local company had laid off engineers, I went straight to LinkedIn to view the profiles of their engineers. But unlike everyone else in Boston, I wasn’t looking for a list of names to call. Instead I wanted to get a sense of the talent density at this company. Talent density works like this: high quality engineers prefer to work with other high quality engineers. The result is that good engineers typically be found in clusters. This is true for the companies for which they…
  • AWS & The Wizard of Oz

    9 Sep 2014 | 1:14 pm
    I will confess: I both admire and respect Amazon. If all they ever achieved was to be my go-to online store and stream TV / movies to my house, I’d be a big fan. I also appreciate their near maniacal focus on the customer, their organizational productivity at scale, the commitment to being a technology company, and their willingness to take risks. But they did something even better that will forever endear me to them: they eliminated my need to ever touch physical server and storage infrastructure again. ;) But there is one side of Amazon for which I’m not a fan: their secretive side.

  • Competitive Analysis

    Joe Kinsella
    7 Sep 2014 | 10:04 am
    I’m not a big fan of competitive analysis. While I generally know the high-level value of different products in a market, you’re unlikely to find me taking a deep dive into a competitive product. This is a change from a decade ago, when I was convinced a key component to success was knowing the competitive market as well as I knew my own product. I used to spend hours at SilverBack analyzing a competitor’s website, talking to their current and former customers, and sitting through demos. But over the last decade I stopped focusing on competitors for two simple reason: It distracted…

Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough.

    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

    Mobile phone network EE has made a controversial move by offering customers the ability to “skip the queue” for support, angering many customers. Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…

  • Nata’s Corner: September 2014

    29 Aug 2014 | 4:05 pm
    There’s been a lot written about the death of Robin Williams. I won’t go in and add my two cents, because it won’t be  as poignant as this tweet from Evan Rachel Wood, “Genie. You’re free.” We’ll miss you Robin. About three weeks ago, the news was full of stories about how Russian hackers had stolen almost 1.2 billion email address and password combinations by purchasing stolen databases and attacking providers and social media. Then last week, just as the local news was reporting on another bank attack by Russian hackers, I got an email from my bank…

    If you've ever tried using Siri but have been frustrated by its accuracy, you should try giving it a new chance after installing iOS 8. In fact, according to one longtime iPhone user who has a motor speech disorder called dysarthria, Siri has improved so much with iOS 8 that he's able to effectively use it for the first time ever.

  • The iPhone 6 is looking very tempting for many Android users

    Brad Reed
    20 Sep 2014 | 6:47 am
    Apple is very late to the party when it comes to releasing a phone with a display larger than 5 inches, but apparently not too late to generate interest among Android users. Trade-in website Gazelle tells us that "during the week that Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung trade-ins increased with the announcement of new iPhones, jumping more than 3X week-over-week." What's more the company found that "one in three Android users" who are trading in old devices "say they’re likely to upgrade to the iPhone 6." Continue reading...
  • This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

    Jacob Siegal
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:15 pm
    We're at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple's first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we'd look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch. Continue reading...
  • Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

    19 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves. Continue reading...
  • Irony: PC users first to get full access to a major iOS 8 feature

    Chris Smith
    19 Sep 2014 | 4:15 pm
    Apple on Wednesday released iOS 8, its latest major mobile operating system update, but some of the main features in it will only become operational – or fully operational – later in October, following an important update. One of them is iCloud Drive, which Mac users who also own iOS 8 devices are advised avoid enabling until OS X Yosemite is here. But for PC owners who also happen to use iPhones and iPads, iCloud Drive is already available, Ars Technica reports. Continue reading...
